This beach, which is found on the Isle of Anglesey, has won a number of awards for its cleanliness and its water quality, including the coveted Green Coast Award and the Marine Conservation Society Recommendation. This lets you know that the beach is a pristine beauty, unspoiled by litter and developments.

The water quality has been judged to be of the highest possible standard, meaning it is just perfect for a spot of swimming or paddling, and the whole beach is dog friendly – this means that dogs are allowed to enjoy the beach all through the year.

And enjoy it they will (as will you)! The beach is a long, curving crescent of a beach that stretches around the bay, an endless expanse of sand and shingle. It is ideal for a long walk along the coast, looking out to sea as you go.

If you keep an eye out, there’s loads of local wildlife that you might be lucky enough to spot, including dolphins, seals and porpoises.


Cemlyn Bay is located on the northwest coast of Anglesey, along the Anglesey coastal path. Parking is available alongside the bay.
